Herders Ideen einer ‚Logik des Affekts‘ und einer ‚aesthetischen Poetik‘. Zur relativen Identität literarischer Gattungen unter komparatistischen und transkulturellen Aspekten
The cultural-anthropological grounding of Herder’s reflexions on the ancient ode points towards a transgression of traditional genre boundaries. This chapter takes as a starting point the cultural practice of story-telling and the pedagogical attunement of the ‘child’s soul’, with which Herder connects the collective process of general culture to the sphere of perceptual-aesthetic experience of the individual. In accordance with Herder’s metaphoric of oscillation it is the young ‘soul’ – educated as a human sound carrier, which is to be conceived of as the subject of history as well as of narratives. Shaped by this ontogenetical/phylogenetical interplay the individual subject constitutes culture as well as it is moulded by it. Mediated through aesthetic subjectivity culture becomes re-narrated in the universal perspective of history. Here resides an approach for the current debate on transcultural poetics.
